It looks like Comcast, Universal's parent company, might get most of Fox anyway.

Even if this happens, Marvel/Disney would still get the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic 4 back due to a clause in the contract Marvel put in with their deal wit Fox back in the 1990's.

Well, both of those properties would fare better being back at Marvel than doing nothing at Comcast/Universal.


Meanwhile, another interview with Trevorrow has surfaced, its fairly general at first disccussing the various points about his involvement with Lucasfilm and his disappointment when it came to The Book of Henry:

Upprox Colin Trevorrow interview (Book of Henry, Star Wars, Jurassic World)

But then this came up regarding the aforementioned indie:

"I mean, I made a film about holding predatory men in positions of power accountable for assault, and that is an uncomfortable subject to talk about. But we are talking about it now and we’re listening and I hope the negative response won’t deter other filmmakers from telling these stories, because we need to hear them, both in life and in art."

And regarding the backlash of his comments regarding female directors and blockbusters, he also commented on the changing landscape in that regard, and this I do take strong disagreement with:

however embarrassing that moment was for me, if that was part of the spark that led to the revolution that is happening right now, I’ll take that hit. I think it’s worth it.

Most notably because the sea change of bringing women into the blockbusting fold did not happen overnight and the recent increase has nothing to do with him. Within minutes of this posting, Twitter went berserk again. The basic gist of the newfound outrage is that he's now twisting and appropriating the start of the "MeToo" movement for himself and his film. At this point he's just running his mouth off, and that can get you into all kinds of trouble. This is troubling because once again the narrative against Jurassic will turn very sour and that is the last fucking thing we need now.

I want to see these two movies as I am wild about Dwayne Johnson.    

Rampage and Skyscraper are both coming out in 2018.

AT&T has beat the U.S. federal government in court to buy Warnet Brothers for $85 billion dollars.

Warner Brothers really needed this news since they were at least $20-$23 billion in debt. This court win means that this buyout can now happen and that it cures their debt.

It looks like Disney and Comcast might split the properties that Fox has.

If Disney gets the Marvel stuff and Comcast gets Aliens/Predator, I’m ok with that. I was pretty worried certain properties would not do well under the Disney banner, even under other labels.

It looks like Disney will add more money to its original bid for Fox.

HUGE NEWS!!!

Disney increased their offer to buy Fox at $71.3 billion dollars and the Murdoch's have accepted the offer.


Good. Comcast is a bad company and it's under federal investigation. They can suck a decomposing egg.

It looks like Chris Hardwick didn't really abuse Chole Dykstra after all.
